There seemed to be at least some support for having way to manually
degrade from sync rep to async rep via something like

  ALTER SYSTEM SET synchronous_commit='local';

Doing that seems unlikely to meet much resistant on grounds of principle,
so it seems to me that working on that would be the best way forward for
the submitter. I don't know how hard it would be to pull this off,
